|Voluntourists on Kuzikus Wildlife Reserve
1. exclusive and authentic nature experiences / holidays
Kuzikus is a wildlife reserve, inhabiting over 3000 wild animals, including the critically endangered black rhino. The reserve is financed by ecotourism and natural resource 6 wildlife management. Kuzikus Wildlife Reserve lies 180 km south-east of Windhoek in the middle of the Kalahari, far from any kind of civilization. On the Reserve there is the main complex with lodge, office and two privately owned houses as well as an employees village and a research/voluntourist tented camp. The employees village and the research/voluntourist camp are about 0,5 and 1 km from the main complex, respectively.
Kuzikus does offer a rustic tented camp with en-suite shower / toilet.
Volunteers will be based in the research/voluntourist tented camp with en-suite shower and toilet 1 km away from the lodge. The tent is shared with max 1 other voluntourist. There is also a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering. Food for breakfast lunch and dinner will be provided.
We charge 990.-Euros per volunteer for 21 days
We see our volunteers as tourists who want to be involved in the day to day work on the reserve to experience the truly authentic Africa. During their stay they will gain insights into tourism, as well as farm maintenance and conservation work by working hands on in our experienced team. There will be no scheduled program as such, as work is flexible for upcoming events. Managing a wildlife reserve requires enormous
Our volunteers are part of a diverse team with wildlife ecologists, Land Rover mechanists, bushmen trackers, fencing experts, conservationists, horse tracking guides...everyone involved in maintaining a nature reserve within the Kalahari wilderness.
This volunteer position is perfectly suited to everyone who enjoys the solitude, living among wild animals and being involved in sometimes also physically demanding work. If you show flexibility and genuine interest in cultural and natural conservation we will ensure that you will learn a lot about our country, nature conservation, tourism and wildlife management in Southern Africa and gain a very authentic experience of life on a wildlife reserve in the Kalahari.
Why not take your partner or friend an enjoy Kuzikus on a voluntourist basis together. It will be a lifetime experience to share forever.
There might be very limited opportunity to go into town unless you book your own transfer. It is therefore important that you are capable of dealing with and enjoying the solitude and nature as well as being able to find your place in the Kuzikus team. However there is always an opportunity to give a private shopping list to the one responsible for the catering or even to join in to help on the long shopping trip to Windhoek.
There is permanent cell phone reception and the possibility to connect to WLAN in the volunteer kitchen.
There will be plenty of opportunities to get out into the field by game drive, horseback or during farm work.
